Chemical toxicity has become a prevalent subject of recent litigation, particularly in relation to toxic exposure. The mere utterance of the word “asbestos” yields a far greater negative response nowadays than it did 30 years ago, primarily due to the proliferation of litigation in this area during the 1980s and 1990s. The danger of toxic torts lies in the fact that these harmful, often carcinogenic, substances tend to be invisible to the naked eye, yet present in many unsuspecting locations and products.
From a personal injury standpoint, toxic torts tend to involve catastrophic injuries and fatalities, many of which affect a great deal of people who suffered from a given type of exposure. Thus, these cases often manifest themselves in the class-action format. At The Law Office of Aman N.
